Chocolate 3-D printer
Launched the day after Easter by Choc Edge Limited in the UK is the world’s first 3-D chocolate printer. Instead of being limited to commercial molds or having custom molds made, you can use software to sketch your 3-D design, and the Choc Creator printer will reproduce your design in chocolate.
Choc Edge is interested in having people “co-creating” their own chocolates with whoever has one of these machines. As such, the machine doesn’t seem intended for mass production. It makes chocolates one at a time using a syringe-like apparatus that pumps a thin even stream of chocolate and creates the bonbons in layers.
From the videos on their website, it looks like a slow process.
According to Tecca, Choc Creator Version 1 is available for purchase: $4,600 plus shipping from the UK.
